3OB Explore Shadows

This week, 3OB have exploring the concept of shadows as part of our Science topic – Light and Shadow. We took a visit to the playground to explore how shadows are made as well as how they can change depending on the light source and distance from it. 

Take a look at some of our Pic Collages to explain our learning:

Revolting rhymes, 15th February 2019

 

What a week this has been! The show was a resounding success. The children gave, by far, their best performance in the final Thursday performance and did us all proud. A few people deserve a special mention: The class reps, the costumes looked absolutely outstanding, the TA’s, who worked tirelessly behind the scenes and finally our very own Mr. King, who helped direct and put the whole extravaganza together. It was a huge amount of work for everyone involved, but after seeing it, we are sure you are as proud of the children as us and agree it was all worth it. 

Thank you for all coming and have a restful holiday. The children certainly deserve it.

3RK Measuring Shadows

In 3RK, we have been investigating how shadows change in size depending how near or far the light source is from an object. We then recorded our results and observations and wrote detailed conclusions to explain our findings!

3OB Meet Jayne The Illustrator!

Year 3 are currently exploring the illustrator – Quentin Blake – as part of our Art project this half term. Today, they had a fantastic opportunity to meet a real-life illustrator – Jayne Schofield! We created our very own illustrations under Jayne’s guidance as well as our own characters. We also had a Q&A session and found out what it was like to be an illustrator. Take a look at us in action…

Weekly Review: Friday 25th January

Dear Parents,

 

This week the children have worked very hard when practising for the upcoming Year 3 Show!  They are excited to present the show to you and have been developing great acting and speaking skills.  The children have enjoyed practising singing the songs for our show and well done to everybody that is learning their lines and songs at home – Keep it up!

 

In Literacy, the children are writing their own scripts for a well -known short story and have incorporated the features of script writing into their own work.

 

In Maths, the children have learnt about finding the perimeter of compound shapes.  They are beginning to work on position and direction where the focus is on ‘turns and right-angles.’

 

In Topic, the children are enjoying developing their map skills.  They have been reading and writing grid references as well as recognising map symbols.

 

In Science, the children are beginning to investigate the terms ‘transparent,’ ‘translucent,’ and ‘opaque.’

 

In Art, the children have continued to use the illustrator ‘Quentin Blake’ as their stimulus for sketching.

 

Have an enjoyable weekend.

3DO do a Science investigation

Today, we were looking at wbich objects were opaque, transslucent or transparent. We then evaluated our investigation to see what went well and what we would do different next time.

3JS Illustrators

 

This week, 3JS have looked at the artwork of Quentin Blake the illustrator of Revolting Rhymes. They copied a self portrait of him and then watched a clip about constructive feedback. The class then applied this by giving constructive feedback to one another and then attempted to draw the portrait again. Can you see the improvements?

Weekly Review – Friday 18th January 2019

Dear Parents,

This week, Year 3 have had a productive week of learning, including lessons linked to our topic for this term – Showstoppers – Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes. We have also started thinking about and preparing for our upcoming show by practising our scripts and beginning to learn the songs.

In Literacy, we have been thinking about the format and structure of play scripts by organising a ‘muddled’ script as well as adding stage directions (verbs and adverbs) to help the reader understand how to act and speak their lines.

In Maths, we have been exploring the concept of perimeter. We have identified what ‘perimeter’ is as well as calculated the perimeter of both simple and compound shapes. At the end of the week, we also applied these skills to solve a topic-based problem by creating a fairy tale village, in which each character required a house with a set perimeter.

In Topic, we have continued to develop our understanding of grid references and looked at maps in more details. In particular, we have discussed how keys can help to understand a map and added these to a fantasy map.

In Science, we started our new topic – Light and Shadow. During our first lesson, we identified different sources of light (both natural and artificial) and explained how light allows us to see. We also drew diagrams to illustrate our understanding.

In Art, we explored the medium of water colour, which was often used by our focus illustrator – Quentin Blake. This week, we experimented using water colours to paint and created a colour wheel to demonstrate our learning and painting skills.

Have a great weekend.
